Washington, Oct 22 (IANS) Pakistan Friday again dropped the ‘K’ bomb asking US President Barack Obama to intervene in the Kashmir dispute during his November visit to India.

“President Obama has always understood the importance of a Kashmir solution,” Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said at the start of the final day of the latest Washington-Islamabad strategic talks here.

“His coming visit to the region is the time to begin to redeem the pledge,” he said minutes after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced a $2 billion package of military aid to Pakistan to get tough with terrorists.

He said a recent crackdown against suspected Muslim militants in Kashmir threatens peace and stability in South Asia.
